KL Rahul’s unbeaten 64-run innings off 103 balls helped India clinch victory in the second ODI against Sri Lanka. With the win, India seats comfortably with a 2-0 lead in the ongoing 3-match series. Sri Lanka had won the toss and had chosen to bat first. Yadav and Siraj both managed to take three wickets each. Impressive bowling from Kuldeep Yadav, who was crowned Man of the Match, Mohammed Siraj helped India bowl out the Sri Lankan side for a low target of 215. Even though Sri Lanka looked strong in the opening overs, hoping to post a score in the 280-300 range, the batting side’s attack soon fizzled out at Eden Gardens. While Siraj attacked the top order, Yadav took care of the middle-order batsmen. Pacer Umran Malik continued to impress, picking up two wickets in the match.

While India was losing wickets every few overs, Rahul’s inning was supported by Hardik Pandya’s 36 runs and Shreyas Iyer’s 28 run hauls. In the end, India comfortably won by 4 wickets with 40 balls left. India’s batting went off with a poor start with an almost immediate collapse of the opening batters. Iyer’s innings started putting up some runs for India, but it was Pandya and Rahul’s 75-run partnership that stabilised the Indian batting order.

The Men in Blue will now look to emphatically end the series with another win over Dasun Shanaka’s men at the Greenfield International Stadium in Thiruvananthapuram tomorrow. The match is expected to start at 1:30 PM IST. With the series already won, Indian skipper Rohit Sharma may choose to sub out some of the starting players to test the readiness of the rest of the squad.
